Elizabeth's project aims to study the relationship between parental instruction and novice drivers' ability to identify and respond to latent road hazards. Her research will first examine and describe parent-teen conversations about hazard identification and mitigation, and then develop and test a hazard anticipation training program to teach parents to better communicate with their children about identifying potential hazards on the roadway.
